Update Gridview table from MySQL database in Visual Studio

I am attempting to update a Gridview but can't seem to get the proper syntax. I tested this in the data source and it works
SelectCommand="SELECT Employee.* FROM Employee WHERE (empLName = @empLName)"

UpdateCommand="UPDATE Employee SET userName = @userName, password = @password, empPermissions = @empPermissions, empFName = @empFName, empLName = @empLName, empPhone = @empPhone, empEmail = @empEmail WHERE (empID = @empID)">

Open in new window


But I want to use C# to update the Gridview rows. Here is the update method:
public static bool updateEmpManage(System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView gvEmployee, string empLName)
    {




        MySqlConnection connection = new MySqlConnection("server=;user id=;database=;;persistsecurityinfo=True;Allow User Variables=True");
        connection.Open();

       using( MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(String.Format("UPDATE Employee SET userName = @userName, password = @password, empPermissions = @empPermissions, empFName = @empFName, empLName = @empLName, empPhone = @empPhone, empEmail = @empEmail WHERE empLName = '{0}'", empLName), connection))
        //using (MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(query, connection);
        {



            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@userName", userName);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@password", password);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@empPermissions", empPermissions);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@empFName", empFName);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@empLName", empLName);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@empPhone", empPhone);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@empEmail", empEmail);
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
        }

       

        return true;



    }

Open in new window


Here is the method calling my method calling the update:
 protected void gvEmployee_RowUpdating(object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
       {
           clsDataLayer.updateEmpManage(gvEmployee, empLName.Text );
        }

Open in new window


There seems to be several ways to get this to work but I just can't figure it out. The goal is to be able to update and/or delete the row. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I've been stuck trying to get this working for hours.

seems strange that you are pass the entire gridview object to the update routine.
you need to pass just the row being acted upon.  its in the GridViewUpdateEventArgs  e.Row

or better still, extract the data from the row in the RowUpdating method and pass strongly typed objects to the update method,

e.Row.Cells[xx]  will give you the items for each of the update parametes i suspect.
